Houses by the Zebulon Post Office Demolished Today
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - The two houses located next to the Post Office in Zebulon are no more. The beautiful old house on the corner was an icon of sorts in Zebulon and will be missed. Derrick Johnson Equipment was hired to demolish the houses, and that process began today.

The houses looked stable from the outside but were a safety hazard that needed to be addressed. The house on the corner and the yellow house next to it on Highway 19 are gone tonight.

I talked to Jerry Colwell by phone about the houses today, and he advised that the houses were beyond the point that they could be fixed. Jerry said that he has no plans for these lots at this time.

There are more pictures below this article. And if anyone has any history on this house that you would like for me to add to my article, please contact me by email or phone.

Thanks to Rosemary Bunn and Steve Hicks for letting me know that the houses were being demolished.

This is where the yellow house used to be.
 

Perhaps these pieces from the porch will go on to live in another project and those who see it will remember this history from Zebulon.
